Betta Hammock...anyone ever tried these?

I picked one up for Nippy while getting him some more live plants. Thought I'd let him give it a try. Any thoughts? Does your betta use or like them?

I read there is metal inside and it might rust and the tip might be too sharp but all the products of that brand have bad reviews because of problems. The Betta logs paint chips off the automatic feeder never spins from what I read. I bought the leaf then read the reviews and took it out. I took the Betta log out even though my Betta loved it and spent a lot of time in it but I started finding chipped paint and pieces of it. I read the leaf rusts suction fails off and I think the point is too tough.

I have one for my Stormageddon. I wouldn't say he loves it, but he sleeps on it about as much as he sleeps on the tops of his other plants. Apparently there's an issue with the wire inside tearing the leaf and rusting, but mine's new, so it hasn't been an problem yet.

So do I, I love planting my tanks with lava rock and plants. Apparently all brand products of this brand have a lot of problems.

Thanx for the feedback folks :). I'll try it out for a bit but out it comes if it begins to rust or I see damaged scales/skin. He does love his live plants too! I just took the last 2 artificial ones out to complete the live setup

My betta Fred seems to like his hammock leaf. I haven't looked for the rust yet.

I will keep an eye out for problems with it now.

My betta loves it. It took him a while to get used to it though. Now he's always there. He doesn't even notice the other toys anymore he just swims around and rests on his hammock and then swims again. LOL.

I have both live and fake plants and some toys for him to hide in. But my live plants are still small. I keep the hammock in there about 2 inches below the top, so when he goes to sleep he doesn't have to swim too far up to breathe.
